Have you ever wondered what life would be like without a mouse to guide your cursor on the screen of your laptop? ‘Well, it would be like having a touch-pad’, you might reply, eyebrow raised. No, it wouldn’t. Because the Leap is a way better and much more natural solution to the ol’ touch-pad/mouse combo. ‘But what is the Leap?’, you ask. Well, dear reader, the Leap is ‘a small iPod sized USB peripheral that creates a 3D interaction space of 8 cubic feet to precisely interact with and control software on your laptop or desktop computer’, sensing not only your hand and finger movements independently, but also items such as pens.

The Leap is available for pre-ordering.
